I have started to take a look at the automatic transmission and cleaned it up a bit. These are pics of the transmission and torque converter seperated, then put together. The is another piece of the transmission that is on its way, called the Flex Plate. Its the key to making a proper motor coupling. I have already figured that I need a 15 inch by 15 inch plate for mounting to the transmission. The plate is going to need a cut out so I can access the torque converter. The way the adapter will go is a plate mounted to the motor, then the coupler mounted to the motor shaft. The Flex Plate will then be screwed down to the motor coupling, and then the torque converter will be screwed to the torque conveter. That will then all be connected to the transmission with a few spacers.
